For students pursuing people-oriented careers, programs in the Sociology Department equip you with a depth of understanding about culture and society. From academic studies of great thinkers to hands-on opportunities to impact individuals and communities, our courses and programs offer a broad diversity of perspectives that prepare you for a wide range of vocational fields.
A study of sociology or human services is an ideal complement to many other majors and career paths—from law to ministry to journalism to criminology and so much more.
As thinkers and problem-solvers, graduates trained in sociology are uniquely prepared to contribute to societal progress through a wide range of vocations. A complement to other majors such as journalism, history or religion, sociology furthers awareness of how relationships and social concerns affect modern culture. An emphasis in cross-cultural sociology will broaden your understanding of diverse cultural and national backgrounds.
Carson-Newman sociology students have opportunities to interact with people of different cultures in everyday life right on campus. In partnership with C-N’s English Language Institute, you’ll be matched with an international student as a conversation partner.
